Finally.. HEAT in Ontario!!

Well, we finally got some heat in this province! Finally, on July 30, 2009 we spent a full day with NO rain, just Sunny skies with lots of warm temps! We headed up to the Disera cottage on Lake Muskoka. Fantastic day just chillin' on the dock and playin' in lake. This cottage is a "real" cottage with low key accommodations, no power plant and wicked vistas of the lake. Thanks to Peter, Pam and Q-Dawg for a great day. Enjoy the pics!




This is a watermelon named "WILSON". We played with Wilson all day and then ate him with a nice meal of tube steaks.

















Tomorrow looks great too! Yeah us! Back on our own boat on Friday, maybe I will get some good pics for you. Next trip.... climbing the White Mountains!
All for now,

EPIC 8 HOUR RACE

So... we decide to race the local enduro event called the "Epic 8 Hour". The entire family took part in this event. Thought I might mention that Ontario is having some CRAP weather at the moment. Here we are with heaps of holidays and the days are regularly cloud covered. Although I hear BC is one big "tinder box", I am not gonna lie, I wouldn't mind a bit of thier sunshine. We are definitly dreaming of the Sunshine Coast Australia at the moment, wondering how in the heck we can get back to the promised land. Anyway, the race was soggy but incredibly fun to have everybody in the family out on the race course! Auntie Wendy will have to come and ride with these kids, thet are getting FAST! Enjoy the video clip of the Epic 8.

Six Mile Lake - Cottage Weekend

We had a fantastic couple days livin' in the Ontario summer heat. Glenn Meeuwisse has a sweet cottage up on Six Mile Lake near Georgian Bay. If you have never been up in that region, you should totally check it out. We travelled up with the Gain family. Check out the video clip for a 7:00 preview of the weekend highlights!
